I am having such a busy Monday morning! When I saw this nice tea sachet in my tea drawer here at work, asking nothing of me but to put some water in my kettle, I knew it was a Hot Cinnamon Sunset day!

I had a very bad experience with a hot cinnamon tea (not Harney’s) when I was brewing all teas at 5 minutes no matter what, and putting milk and sugar in all black teas. I had brewed up the most sickening bitter hot sweet milky disgusting thing ever, so I knew this was to be taken without additives, and steeped with a light hand.

At three minutes and taken plain, this is DELICIOUS!!! I love cinnamon, and this is a spicy, lively, cinnamony delight! Invigorating! People say “red hots!” as the flavor for this tea, and I would agree – but a less sweet candy flavor to me. I went for a second infusion at 5 minutes and still got a nice warm spicy cup of tea. Not sickening or cloying at all. This really hit the spot this morning.

I have to get some sachets of Harney & Sons teas for days like these! How cute are these tagalong tins for just this purpose?!!

The little tins are cool just to play with!

I used to have a tin like that which held mints. I loved to pop it open and closed incessantly—to the annoyance of everyone around me! :)

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
